There were two goals scored this past weekend for those that don’t know how to scroll down and see the highlights. Matt Taylor scored for the second straight week in Germany, while Michael Orozco Fiscal scored his first goal of the season for San Luis.
I also posted some highlights of Anthony Brooks and Alfredo Morales in a friendly against Juventus. It is looking like the U-20 center back, Brooks, could be in the starting lineup for Hertha Berlin in their season opener against Paderborn on Friday.
Also of note from the weekend, Charlie Davies came off the bench in Randers’ 2-1 win and Bobby Wood scored twice for 1860 Munich II in the Regionalliga. And in Finland, Christian Eissele scored four goals, while Daniel Stevens and Joey Spivack each scored once in Kemi Kings’ 8-0 win over Warkaus. Once the bigger leagues start up in the next couple weeks, I will bring back the full The OT Report for the weekends.
